This is Blake. #adoptable
I was invited last month to an event at @calgarylibrary celebrating the @empathy.pawject. My reaction to this invite was opposite to my normal social gathering invite reaction: I knew I definitely would go. This project is one that I’ve watched unfold in joy on Instagram. Ms. Carruthers is an art teacher who mixes painting and adoptable dogs to affirm the kind values these grade 4 students already had in their hearts.
The event took place Saturday evening in the newest and fanciest library in Calgary. I asked the perfectly normal question, “can I bring a homeless dog with me?”. The query was run up the chain of command and someone said yes. So I started looking for an adoptable dog who’s interests include reading, fancy architecture, meeting many humans of all ages, being quiet for extended periods of time, sitting still, and generally just not embarrassing me. Coincidentally, this is Blake’s exact list of likes.
He’s almost 7 months old and available to live at your house for the rest of his life. He’s so well behaved that whenever I told people he’s almost 7 months I was looked at like a crooked car salesman misrepresenting mileage. Blake is currently being fostered by the fine folks at @muttleycrueyyc and he’s available for adoption through @aarcs . #adoptable
If the artists didn’t already present an art show that exceeded all expectations, an Empathy Pawject artist presented me with a portrait of Beans that perfectly captures his gooberness.
Special Blake appreciation to Kelly Adams in Calgary for dognapping this young fella from his foster, hiking a mountain with him, and dropping him off at my place for his brindle suit evening event.
